Closed Suggestions on Asus Mobo Tags: Motherboards Asus Product Last response: July 12, 2012 2:33 AM in Motherboards Share yingiee July 12, 2012 12:18:16 AM I need some suggestions for getting a mobo. I have rma 2 asrock z77 extreme4 mobos so far so I am trying to switch it up for Asus. My built - ATX case I3-2120 Cpu Radeon 6850 GPU DDR3 1600 Ram I'm looking for mainly ATX since I might plan to xfire GPU in the future. Main use would probably for gaming for now. I guess I would like to have a few different mobos in different price ranges, like a 100-130, 130-150, 150-180, etc. More about : suggestions asus mobo nikorr a c 328 V Motherboard a b Ĉ ASUS July 12, 2012 12:25:37 AM What was wrong with mobos? BTW, what PSU do u have? yingiee July 12, 2012 12:39:50 AM The first mobo's power connectors were faulty and it would not turn on, second one I had it shorted out somehow so I asked for a refund. Been hearing a lot of good news about Asus so I am planning to give it a try, but a lot of the reviews on newegg are making me doubt the authenticity of Asus. For PSU, I am using a 750w Roswell with a Roswell Atx Case Related resources [Upgrade] SSD and Asus Mobo - Help and suggestions please! :) - Forum Time to upgrade mobo Suggestions Please!!! - Forum Buying a new MOBO , need suggestions . - Forum Suggestions for cpu, mobo , vga - Forum Best memory suggestions for Asus Crosshair IV Formula Mobo - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Best solution nikorr a c 328 V Motherboard a b Ĉ ASUS July 12, 2012 12:57:42 AM Get this one than. It makes no sense to spend more, because of your CPU, cannot overclock. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... yingiee July 12, 2012 1:22:44 AM Oh wow, I did not realize the i3 was not OC-able. Guess I should go for H77s. What about this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The features are pretty much identical just that this one has a different audio chipset. But the surprising thing is that after promo and mail in rebate it only comes out to 95 bucks. Will audio chipset matter that much? nikorr a c 328 V Motherboard a b Ĉ ASUS July 12, 2012 1:33:12 AM You can get any of these two. They are just fine. yingiee July 12, 2012 1:45:01 AM Thanks a lot for the info. If you didn't tell me that i3 was not able to OC, I might have ended up getting like a sabertooth and waste like $100 lol. I'll just order it the Asus mobo now instead of waiting for my refund from the rma to be approved before buying a new mobo. yingiee July 12, 2012 1:45:14 AM Best answer selected by yingiee. nikorr a c 328 V Motherboard a b Ĉ ASUS July 12, 2012 2:33:29 AM Good luck yingiee! nikorr a c 328 V Motherboard a b Ĉ ASUS July 12, 2012 2:33:41 AM This topic has been closed by Nikorr Can't find your answer ?
